What we do
Bug Labs helps organizations innovate in the rapidly-growing “Internet of Things” market.
Bug's unique, cloud-based Swarm platform abstracts the raw functionalities (e.g., sensors, actuators, transceivers) of any hardware device and exposes them as web services, allowing simple drag-and-drop creation of applications, no matter how heterogeneous the hardware in use may be. Swarm can work with any connected device type.
Bug's Blocks are snap-together modules, including a powerful Linux-based CPU, sensors, actuators and transceivers, which allow rapid prototyping, cost-effective deployment and field upgradability in a wide variety of use cases. Bug Blocks can be used to complement or replace existing devices.
And the friendly folks in Bug Lab's Services Group offer system integration, consulting, and training / support. They will help you get up and running quickly, assist with strategy, planning, deployment, or training -- or they can manage an entire project from soup to nuts -- whatever works best for you.
All of Bug's products allow customers to easily leverage the collective power of real-time connected devices to make better, faster, more insightful business decisions.
